Gear position indicator

06 R6 track bike with Dyno-jet quick shifter and PC111


Which brand gear indicator would you recommend for my track bike ?
Where can I purchase them online (I am in Oz)
How easy are they to instal on to the loom or do they plug into an existing socket and if so which one and where is it ?
Is this something I can do myself (I have some mechanical skill ) or should my local mechanic do it.
Your opinion and help would be greatly appreciated .

Re: Gear position indicator

This is the one I got for my track bike. Plug and play, can't get much easier than that

Re: Gear position indicator

it's nice to have, but after a while maybe due to riding on the same track or frequent it the most, you kinda know which gear you're in sub consciously even when you're down shifting going into a turn just the way the bike pulls and feels.

but i do have one on my gpx, nice to see where i'm at when reviewing the session. the link provided above i hear is great as well. there's a plug and play version and a solder version. both are great.

Re: Gear position indicator

I got two Pzero plug and play indicators just for the moments I lose focus and my gear count, it has helped some... That said, I have to agree with Maddasgascar, after a while (at least for the track) you know what gear you are in; I've since stopped looking at it as much. For the street, this is very helpful for not hitting gear 7, like when I'm on my S....

Re: Gear position indicator

As I only ride the bike once a month at the track I quite often find that elusive 7th gear

The feel of my track bike is so different to my daily ride a
Ducati Monster S2R1000 which I can feel what gear I am in 99% of the time
but the nature of the in line 4 600 I get lost very easily .
Thanks for the suggestions

As you start to ride more and more, you won't even use it's but it's still a good insurance policy imo... It helped me my last outing at ACS to hit the corner in the right gear in one particular corner I was having trouble with.


And this coming from a guy who JUST installed his set 2 months ago, or so...

Re: Gear position indicator

For a track only bike, a flashed ECU can turn the speedo into a gear indicator.

07 R6, MJS Header, GYTR slip on, smog block offs, K&N, flashed ECU, PCV, AutoTune, -1/+2.

Re: Gear position indicator

i think there are cleaner/better made options out there. the gipro is the industry leader for a reason. that's what i have. wasn't plug n play, but took all of ~10 minutes to install - including removing the tank.
